RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

Restorative Dentistry

Patients like you from Brandon, Pearl, Madison, Flowood, Ridgeland, and Canton have enough to worry about in their day to day lives – an endless to do list, stress from work, and anxiety from everyday living. Worrying about whether their smiles will ever look or feel normal again shouldn’t be a concern. That’s where we come in.  

You can feel relaxed and at ease to know the dental team at Big River Dental can handle the repair and restoration of your smile. We offer a number of restorative dentistry options to renew damaged oral health and replace lost teeth. Dr. Dickey and his team have many treatment options available to put smiles back on our patient's faces.

Root Canal Therapy

Here’s a little “tooth” education.  Your teeth are made up of three layers and two different parts.   The outer layer of your teeth is made up of a hard surface called dental enamel. Beneath the enamel is a supportive layer called dentin.  Then there’s the inner layer called pulp.  The pulp contains the nerve system of teeth.

 

The visible portion of the tooth is the crown, and below the gums is the root structure that supports teeth, anchoring smiles in place. A root canal is necessary when patients experience an infection of the inner pulp layer of teeth. These infections can be painful because they directly affect the nerve system. The root canal treatment itself typically removes the infected tissue and replaces it with a sterilized filler.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

You might have heard of something called wisdom teeth.  These are the third molars.  These teeth typically erupt at the age of wisdom, which is when a patient is in their late teens or early twenties.  These teeth bring a number of health concerns with them. In many cases, patients’ jaws do not have adequate space for these additional teeth, leading to crowding and impaction.

 

Impaction occurs when teeth cannot erupt from the gum line.  Extraction is the best option to maintain oral health, and we’re happy to provide non surgical wisdom tooth removal in our Brandon, Mississippi dental office.  Contact Big River Dental to schedule your wisdom tooth consultation today.
